EA has announced that four of the voice actors from Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series will be reprising their roles in Battlefront 2. Each of the four Hero characters will be rolling out separately over the next several months, starting this October.

In a blog post on Battlefront 2's website, EA DICE editorial writer Daniel Steinholtz revealed Matthew Wood, James Arnold Taylor, Corey Burton, and Matt Lanter will return to voice General Grievous, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Count Dooku, and Anakin Skywalker respectfully. Grievous comes to Battlefront 2 on October 30, while the remaining three Hero characters don't have exact release dates. As of right now, Obi-Wan is scheduled for November 2018, Dooku for January 2019, and Anakin for February 2019.

EA recently revealed its process for how new Star Wars Hero characters are chosen for Battlefront 2. For the developer, every "hero must counter a villain, and vice versa" so after deciding to add Obi-Wan and Anakin to the game, Grievous and Dooku--villains that share a "natural rivalry" with the two Jedi--were also chosen.

Grievous, Obi-Wan, Dooku, and Anakin are part of a Clone Wars DLC road map scheduled for Battlefront 2. The updates started in August, first focusing on adding a wider variety of cosmetic appearances for the Republic Army, such as Yoda's 41st Elite Corps and Windu's 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps. A Prequel Era playlist was also added to the game, which limits multiplayer matches to Galactic Assault on Clone Wars era maps. More multiplayer locations, like Geonosis, are scheduled for future updates.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The Clone Wars animated series, once believed to be cancelled for good, is returning with a seventh season that sees Anakin and Obi-Wan once again teaming up with Ahsoka Tano to aid in the Siege of Mandalore.

Battlefront 2 seems to have really improved. I may have to jump in and give it another chance. Not that I found it really bad to begin with (Didn't like some of the practices, but the gameplay was pretty solid).

@Smosh150: But gameplay is the main reason I didn't buy it.(Don't care about MTs or a bad campaign)

It doesn't have command posts and vehicle system is poor compared to original 2 battlefronts.

@dorog1995: I was massive fan of the originals and I did enjoy the reboots but the second is by far the better one, that other one was a real disappointment, this one delivered and it keeps on giving, the gameplay is a lot more enjoyable, heroes actually feel majorly different and the gunplay is 10x better, sure they're not the originals but we're slowly getting there, hopefully there'll be a third that's actually up to par.

@sephirothswing: yeah at least EA should make a good Star Wars game since I don't think Disney is that good in managing video game development themselves.(They cancelled a Pirates Of The Caribbean game that looked great when it was 90 percent complete.They also shut down Lucasarts even though their games in development were far more ambitious than EA ones.)

According to Kol Skywalker "We Should Take What Is Given."
